About this author

I write funny, tender romance novels for Harlequin Superromance and Love Inspired Historical.

My next book to be released is That New York Minute, out in April 2012.

I like to set aside some of my writing time for experimental projects - I'm currently trying my hand at a humorous women's fiction novel, and I also finished a Young Adult manuscript.

To find read excerpts of my books or to find out more about me and my journey to publication (hint:5-6 years and lots of rejections!), visit my website


Giving away 2 more copies of The Earl's Mistaken Bride today at http://www.getlostinastory.blogspot.com/ and Fresh Fiction http://freshfiction.com/page.php?id=3764

Using literature, philosophy, anthropology, pop culture, and intellectual reasoning, Keller explains how the belief in a Christian God is, in fact, a sound and rational one. Those are Amazon's words, not mine, but they're an apt summary of a book tha ...more

Hard to predict how this story was going to end, but I really liked the ending...though I'm still thinking about it. Really well-written, with engrossing characters.

I wondered if this book might show its age (first published in the '70s, this edition updated 2005), but the only way it does that is with a deeper, more considered approach than much popular theology.
